Throughout December, WRDSB students and families are invited to learn about the variety of birds that call Waterloo Region home in winter. Whether it is through observing birds at feeders or noticing birds in your daily routine, these amazing animals have a lot to teach us.
Our winter bird event will include a Youtube Live question and answer session with our four environmental education specialists, a citizen science project where we ask students to count birds in their neighbourhood, print/digital resources for in class or at home learning and lesson plans for teachers. The count will be held December 16-23rd, during which time we need students to help us count the numbers and varieties of birds in our region. Get your feeders out and stock up on birdseed!
